Düsseldorf is a city in western Germany known for its fashion industry and art scene. As an important cultural center, Düsseldorf has dozens of museums and in excess of 100 art galleries. Düsseldorf, each July, hosts the Largest Fair on the Rhine, a week-long funfair attracting more than four million visitors.
Why exhibit there
Congress Center Düsseldorf, Düsseldorf’s exhibition center, is based in one of Germany’s most important business and science hubs. It is located on Messe Düsseldorf a mere three kilometres from Germany’s third largest airport and five kilometres from Dusseldorf Old Town.
Once you arrive at Düsseldorf’s airport, it is a hop skip and a jump into town using either the “Flughafen Düsseldorf” station or the S-Bahn S11 via the “Düsseldorf Flughafen Terminal” station.
Restrictions on what you can bring into the country
There are the usual restrictions plus a few extras: no instruments of torture, no dangerous dogs, you’re not allowed to move stolen works of art nor are you allowed conflict or blood diamonds.

- There are no real cultural sensitivities so to speak, but advice for conducting business meetings:
- When meeting Germans for the first time in a business context, short and firm handshakes are the norm.
- Make sure you maintain eye contact throughout.
- Titles and qualifications are held in high regard, so if someone does have a doctorate or a degree, make sure you refer to them as doctor or whatever their title may be.
- The more letters you can put after your name on your business card, the more impressed your German colleagues will be.
